Guitarist AARON NORTH has quit cult rockers The Icarus Line and joined NINE INCH NAILS.

North made his decision to leave up-and-coming band The Icarus Line following the release of their second album, because he believed their music can be developed no further.

And just three weeks later, North received a call from Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor to ask if he'd like to tour with his influential group.

He says, "It felt like the band had run its course and it was time for me to do something else.

"Three weeks after quitting the band, I was asked to play to play in Nine Inch Nails."
